Silver Stacked Bangles
PREREQUISITE: This course is designed for people with intermediate level silversmithing experience. Students are expected to be confident at basic silversmithing skills, especially soldering. It is a prerequisite that all students have taken our soldering masterclass or equivalent elsewhere within the last year, before undertaking this Class.
The process of making bangles is very similar to creating and soldering a ring, but because of the larger surface area, the solder joint is a little trickier and you need a lot more heat!
In this fun and experimental class you will craft 2-3 beautiful silver bangles for you to take home using silver wire and hand tools to texture and shape the bangles.
What you will learn on the class:
How to determine your bangle size and other considerations when sizing bangles
Cutting your wire
Getting a neat and tight solder join
Soldering your bangle on a charcoal block
Cleaning up and shaping your bangle
Texturing and decorating your metal with hammers and hand tools
Polishing and finishing your bangles to a professional standard.
What you need to bring to this class:
Nothing! Everything is provided in the class! However, for health and safety reasons please ensure you wear sturdy closed toe shoes to this class.
As with all of our classes, all materials are included in the cost of the class as well as plenty of tea coffee and luxury biscuits! The classes are all run by expert tutors with years of professional experience who are friendly, knowledgeable and approachable. The size of the classes is kept small to allow plenty of one-on-one attention and the maximum number of students for this class is 8.
We take an hour break for lunch and there are plenty of local shops to get food from, or you can always bring a packed lunch to eat in the studio. If you have any questions regarding this, or other courses please don't hesitate to get in touch.
